Loudoun Literacy Council

Goal: $5,000.00

Specific Need

What your donation does:

  • $50 pays for 10 children’s books that we can distribute to children in our local homeless shelters or through Head Start.
  • $80 pays for a scholarship for a student in our adult English literacy class.
  • $120 pays for four textbooks for adult students in our summer or fall classes.

Mission

Loudoun Literacy Council’s mission is to teach English communication skills and provide literacy resources to empower low-income adults and children to become self-sufficient and confident in their ability to achieve their personal and professional goals.

 

 

 

Profile

Literacy is a fundamental right and an essential human need. It is a crucial element in achieving community-wide aspirations of developing young learners, strengthening families, enabling parents to participate in the education of their children, and ensuring access to opportunities for economic advancement.

 

Loudoun Literacy Council aims to provide residents of Loudoun County with the literacy tools and resources necessary to gain the skills they need to take the most basic and meaningful step toward achieving success and contributing to the community.

 

A team of dedicated and highly trained volunteers work in our programs to extend our reach to more than 2,000 Loudoun County residents annually. Whether they are reading to children in the homeless shelter through our Sweet Dreams initiative, instructing a class of adult English language learners, or assembling book packs for the preschool children in our Head Start partnership, Loudoun Literacy Council is proud of the commitment our volunteers have to improving the literacy skills of others in our community.

 

We put over 12,000 new and gently used books into the hands and homes of at-risk children last year and work with hundreds of adults each year to help them achieve personal goals through improved literacy.

 

Help us give thousands of new books to local children plus literacy tips to their parents by supporting us during #GiveChoose2019. A match from Claude Moore Charitable Foundation for $25,000 will double the impact of your contribution. Thank you for your support and for the tremendous support we have received from Claude Moore Charitable Foundation.
